Best 4K Monitors for Gaming: The Sharpest Monitors you can Game on!

    - Advertisement -

    Gaming at 4K is an entirely different experience altogether. Everything is sharper, more detailed and the colors look gorgeous. However, you need a powerful PC to run modern games at 4K. More specifically, a potent GPU. That’s not all though. To make sure you get the best picture quality, it’s essential that you opt for a high-quality 4K monitor. The best way to choose is by physically visiting the store yourself and comparing the various monitors. However, for those of you who can’t, here’s a guide.

    Best Budget 4K Monitor: LG 24UD58 24-inch 4K UHD

    • Screen Size: 24-inch
    • Brightness: 250 nits
    • Refresh-Rate: 60Hz
    • Response time: 5 ms
    • Panel: IPS
    • Viewing angle: 178
    • Price: Rs. 22,999

    With a price tag of less than 23K INR, the LG 24UD58 is one of the cheapest 4K monitors you can get your hands on. Despite the small screen size, it’s not a bad deal as the extra sharpness you get is well worth it. It makes up for the low price by cutting down on brightness and the response times. As such, it’s not for FPS and eSports enthusiasts but rather suitable for RPG lovers like me.

    Best 4K Monitor Overall: Acer ET322QK

    • Screen Size: 32-inch
    • Brightness: 300 nits
    • Refresh-Rate: 60Hz
    • Response time: 4 ms
    • Panel: VA
    • Viewing angle: 178
    • Price: Rs. 29,499

    The Acer ET322QK is one of the most well-balanced 4K gaming monitors out there. Unlike Dell’s offerings, it doesn’t cost a fortune. With a brightness of 300 nits, 4 ms response time, it strikes the right balance between picture quality and responsiveness. You don’t get any of the do-dads of fancy eSports monitors but to be honest, you don’t need them.

    Best Curved 4K Monitor: Samsung LU32R590 32-inch UHD Curved

    • Screen Size: 31.5-inch
    • Brightness: 350 nits
    • Refresh-Rate: 60Hz
    • Response time: 8 ms
    • Panel: IPS
    • Viewing angle: 178
    • Price: $398

    It’s quite hard to find a curved 4K monitor, and Samsung’s LU32R590 is the closest you’ll get to seeing one. It has a decent brightness of 350 nits but the response time takes a hit at 8ms, but unless you’re planning to use this for fast-paced FPS gaming, it shouldn’t be a major concern. This 32-inch curved 4K display is a bit on the expensive side but the image quality is well worth the extra spending.

    Best 144Hz 4K Monitor for FPS and eSports: Acer Nitro XV273K 27″ UHD

    • Screen Size: 27-inch
    • Brightness: 350 nits
    • Refresh-Rate: 144Hz
    • Response time: 1 ms
    • Panel: IPS
    • Viewing angle: 178
    • Price: Rs. 56,999

    Nothing screams “gaming monitor” like Acer’s Nitro XV273K. Although it’s somewhat on the small side, being a 27″ screen, it makes up for that with an insane 1 ms response time despite being an IPS panel. Add to that the 144Hz refresh rate and 350 nits of brightness and you’ve got yourself a grade-A 4K gaming monitor suitable for just about any title, from fast-paced eSports titles like CS: GO to picturesque RPGs like Dragon Age: Inquisition. It is also G-Sync compatible, comes with a VESA wall mount and features a 99% sRGB wide color gamut.
